Haber Warns ORT Of Anti-Semitism Surge Mixing witticisms and anecdotes with the somber facts of Jewish life, Dr. William Haber, president of World ORT Union's Central Board, told some 300 ORT District VI conventioneers this week that anti-Semitism is on the rise in America. "We are in the beginning of a revival of anti-Semitism that scares the wits out of me," he told the delegates in Orlando Monday night. Apologizing for sounding like a "Jewish telegram," which he defined as a wire that says: "Start worrying, letter follows," Dr. Haber pointed out the opening in Detroit last weekend of a Nazi bookstore, the proposed Skokie, Ill. marches and the events in Washington. "ORT is not uninvolved," he said, "because everything we do is related to things Jewish." He told listeners that "we must be aware." He referred to the "power- ful Jewish lobby" and the un- due amount of publicity it is receiving as a "dual lobby," the loyalty of Jewish Americans being questioned. He quoted the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Iuis Brandeis, a Jew and a Zionist, as saying, "America is my wife. Zionism is my mother. I can be loyal to beth when I embrace my wife. There is no disloyalty to love both your mother and your wife." ORT, which began in St. Petersburg (now Leningrad), Schindler Warns Carter Against Forcing Peace Russia, 98 years ago, is "today as modern as it is productive," said Dr. Haber, and "will have 70,000 students of today practicing in the year 2000. They are being taught such diversified and technological trades as nucleonics, radar, telecom- munications and aviation mechanics." "ORT began," he said, "with the simple theory to plan for the future of our people." Dr. Haber, dean of the College of Literature at the Univ. of Michigan and a for- mer advisor to Gen. Lucius Clay. "Most of you will be in Jerusalem 20 years from now to celebrate Israel's 50th an- niversary," he said. "I have faith in the survival of Israel and the part played by ORT in that historical drama. The District VI convention, which ended Wednesday, en- compassed some nine southeastern states, representing 19,000 Women's American ORT members. DR.

Schindler, chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, stressed last week that the differences between the American Jewish community and the Carter Administration are not irreparable despite the Administrations's sale of sophisticated jet planes to Saudi Arabia and Egypt. But he warned that if the Ad- ministration was to attempt now to impose a peace set- tlement on Israel it would result in an "irreversible break." Speaking at a press con- ference at the President's Conference headquarters, Sehindler said that President Carter now has the "moral obligation" to see that Egypt returns to the negotiating table and to persuade the Saudis to give their "full- hearted hacking to bilateral negotiations" between Israel and Egypt. Schindler confirmed that after the Senate voted 54-44 against rejecting the sale of planes to Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, top White House officials called him and other Jewish leaders and non-Jewish supporters of Israel throughout the country in an attempt to assure them that the Carter Ad- ministration still supports the need for a secure Israel. He refused to reveal who had called him. Asked if he believed such assurances from the White House, Schindler said he is a "pragmatist" and "I measure true belief by deeds." He explained that when words are substan- tiated by action then "I believe it." He added that Jewish history has taught him this since Jews have been betrayed so often. Schindler noted that President Carter stressed that the U.S. was providing 60 F-15s to Saudi Arabia because of a promise made to the kingdom by the Ford administration. "If America has to keep our promises to Saudi Arabia it has to keep our promises to Israel as well," he declared. He poin- ted out that Israel was promised as part of the 1975 Sinai agreement, planes and other weapons. } ........ Rejects 'Watershed' View At the outset, Schindler stressed that the Senate vote was not a "watershed" in voted on beth sides. Asked He said he was "outraged" by those who called the Senate vote a defeat for the "Jewish lobby." He noted that while it was "proper" to call the supporters of Israel a pro-lsrael lobby, it was im- proper to call them a "Jewish lobby" since it included Jews and non-Jews. He said Israel could never have received U.S. hacking if its supporters were only Jews, a small minority in this country. He said he was par- ticulrly "outraged" by the remarks of Sen. Mike Gravel (D. Alaska) who said the Senate vote would prove to be "the watershed year of Jewish influence in this coun- try." Sehindler maintained that if Carter had submitted the three sales separately the outcome might have been the same but because be put the proposal up as a "package" there was a great deal of "confusion" by those who voted on both sides. Asked about the support for the package by Sen. Abraham Ribicoff (D. Conn.), Schin- dler said he was "unhappy" with the Senator's vote but Ribicoff was not elected as a representative of the Jewish people but of the people of Connecticut and had a right to "vote his conscience." The Presidents Conference chairman was especially critical of the Administration for what he called a lack of long-range "geo-political" ptmg in providing the FSs to Saudi Arabia. He pointed to the instability of the area and noted there was no guarantee that the present Saudi regime would remain in power and that would leave the planes in the hands of some radical group. He said the most recent coup d'etat in Cm't on Page 3
